Javea Guide

Javea, or Xabia in the local Valenciano language of the Comunidad Valenciana region, is situated between two headland capes, Cabo de la Nao and Cabo de San Antonio.

Javea has three distinctive areas, the pueblo de Javea (the old town area), the port, and the Arenal sandy beach area.

The old town of Javea is full of character and steeped in history, with narrow streets and the original Javea townhouses.

The church of San Bartolomé is located in the Plaza de la Iglesia in Jávea, a fortified religious building whose origins on the tower-apse date from the 14th century, a Valencian Gothic-style building, with additional works in the 16th century, directed by Domingo Urtiaga.

The Soler Blasco Archaeological and Ethnological museum is also located in the historic old town area of Javea, in a building known as ‘la casa-palau de Antoni Banyuls’ (the palace of Antoni Banyuls). It is one of the town´s most important historic buildings, now housing a large permanent exhibition alongside temporary ones.

The Javea / Xabia coastline consists of beaches, coves, select housing estates and appealing apartment complexes near to the beaches, joined together by a string of viewing point locations (you will see the many “mirador” road signs with the name of each viewpoint).

The Town Hall (Ayuntamiento de Xabia) is also located in the old town, in Plaza de la Iglesia, 4, 03730 XABIA/JAVEA (Alicante) Tel: +34 965 790 500.
